Hoodia Gordonii a cactus plant found thousands of miles away in the Cape Town of South Africa, has become incredibly beneficial for people all over the world. Centuries ago, the simple tribal folk of South Africa cultivated the plant so that they could chew it and satiate hunger and thirst for three to four days.
Hoodia is a typical arid plant with no leaves. In fact, the leaves are reduced to spikes to avoid the loss of water from the surface. It is succulent or juicy in nature. In appearance, it is quite unusual with around ten tentacles. The size is small not more than three-fourth of a foot and it is covered with spikes. The fertile ground of Hoodia cacti are the partial deserts of Botswana, Angola, South Africa and Namibia. There are twenty different species of this family but not all serve the same purpose. The credit of an appetite suppressant exclusively belongs to Hoodia Gordonii.
Things have changed with the time and so is the lifestyle and eating habit. While the modern technology has devised new means to provide us ease and comfort, it has given rise to certain problems as well. Manual work has been replaced and machines have taken their place. As a result, energy consumption at large rate has been reduced which is essential to burn the extra calories. Hence, obesity among people of different age group is rising at an alarming rate. In such a situation, the rediscovery of the beneficial effects of the cactus plant Hoodia is a timely bliss.
The intake of Hoodia minimizes hunger. Now a vital question arises that, if the food intake is reduced considerably does it have a harmful effect on the body?
After all, food is the main source of energy needed by the body to function properly. It is quite astonishing to note that the body does not undergo any ill effect even if it does not take food. This is where Hoodia scores over all other diet- reducing drugs. It has an ingredient called p57, which works, similar to glucose. P57 triggers the hypothalamus of the brain and tricks the brain in believing that the stomach is full. Unlike glucose, it does not release calories and saves the body from putting on extra weight without even feeling feeble.
One more characteristic of Hoodia is that it acts as a mood enhancer. When we are charged up with energy and slimming day by day, the greatest impact is on the psyche. It will generate a positive approach and a bubbling with life attitude, with no lumps of fat bumping on your plans. Apart from this, it has a typical scientific mood enhancing quality, which makes it tremendously beneficial.
Thus, with a new medicinal revolution brought about by this wonder drug obesity will no more be an unsolved problem and in times to come, the widespread use of Hoodia Gordonii may entirely, remove the word obesity from the pages of medical dictionary.
